Two of Scottish romance’s most loved authors have joined pens to write a thrilling new time travel series filled with passion, danger, and intrigue. These never-before-published novels will sweep you to Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic is real, time is relevant, and there is no escape from desire…

Men are disappearing in the Highland crofting village of Heatheredge. The authorities suspect foul play, but without signs of violence—or bodies—they can’t prove a thing.

World champion swordsman Cailean Ross is living the fantasy of a lifetime as the victor of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment Gathering. But when the fantasy turns into reality, swordplay becomes a fight to the death and he finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.

Julianna Mackay flees a man she fears is an evil wizard and literally runs into handsome Cailean Ross. Cailean defends Lady Julianna from her attackers. Together, they set out in search of the key to a six-hundred-year-old curse that can only be broken in medieval Scotland.

When the veil of time is lifted, Cailean and Julianna find that love may not be enough to save them or those they hold dear.

My Thoughts 

Edge of Yesterday by Tarah Scott and Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a magical Time Travel and more. Book 1 in the new and thrilling “Edge” series. Set against the back drop of Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic and time are relevant.
Men are disappearing from a small village, with no bodies, or signs of violence, how can foul play be involved?

This is Cailean Ross, a world champion swordsman and Julianna Mackay, who flees a man she fears is an evil wizard’s tale.

The plot flows seamlessly. The characters are engaging, captivating, and well matched. The story is fast paced and masterfully written.
These authors are two of my favorite authors. They pull readers into their stories and holds captivated. I couldn’t put “Edge of Yesterday” down, it was so thrilling.

In, “Edge of Yesterday”, readers will find suspense, mystery, intrigue, danger, a wicked wizard, a six hundred year old Scottish curse, and a romance that crosses time, itself. Everything a Romance and Time Travel fan could possibly wish in a great story. Plus a set on the edge of your seat plot! What a tangle of excitement!
WOW! I can’t wait to read the next installment. There story has somewhat of a cliffhanger, leading readers into Book 2, but this book has a satisfying ending. A must read by Tarah Scott and Sue-Ellen Welfonder! Great job, ladies! I highly recommend reading “Edge of Yesterday”, you will not go wrong!

About the book…

Let Sleeping Warlocks Lie…

Iain MacGregor knows how his warlock family feels about outsiders discovering the truth of their powers, its forbidden. That doesn’t seem to stop him from having accidental magickal discharges whenever he’s around the woman who has captured his attention. Apparently his magick and other “parts” don’t seem to care what the rules are, or that the object of his affection just might be his undoing.

Warning: Contains yummy, hot, mischievous MacGregor boys who may or may not be wearing clothing and who are almost certainly up to no good on their quest to find true love.

TODAY’S GUEST BLOGGER~ CHRISTOPHER CONROY~ ANZARD…with #Review *Children’s Book*

Anzard banner

 

PLEASE WELCOME TODAY’S GUEST…

CHRISTOPER CONROY

WHAT I, CHRISTOPHER CONROY, WANT YOU TO LEARN FROM MY BOOK ANZARD

Many times as I interacted with other people in my daily life they would say a ‘two word’ expression over and over it seemed. Those ‘two words’ were ‘I knew’.
The sad part about those words was they were always accompanied by something sad or regret. I always wondered if they knew during those moments then why didn’t they listen to themselves?
I believe the reason was that people seemed to never acknowledge the fact that the ‘I knew’ they were talking about was their own inner voice given to them by this Universe.
They just didn’t realize how special they really were or what incredible gifts we all have inside us if only we would listen and nurture those gifts.
The people I met would say things like, “I knew that restaurant would be bad” or “I knew that milk was sour” or “I knew that person was no good”.
But they never seemed to listen to themselves and went past their own ‘I knew’ to doing something that didn’t make their lives better.
Once while hiking in the mountains and thinking about it I decided to give that term ‘I knew’ a name and that name was ANZARD (part angel/part wizard). We all have an Anzard and the one in my story is named Poofy … a cute, funny, smart little pixie from a planet called Spiritainia.
So guys, what I want you to learn from my book is to listen and trust your own instincts. Be aware what the voice inside you is telling you because it loves you and it watches out for you.
If you trust that voice of yours I know your certainty, creativity and courage will grow with you as you evolve through your own magical life.
Also my voice outside of your inner voice wants you to know that I love you too.

Thank you, Christopher Conroy, for visiting with us and our readers today!

About the book…

Title: Anzard
Author: Christopher Conroy
Publisher: CreateSpace
Pages: 154
Genre: Children’s Fiction
Format: Paperback/Kindle

Author Christopher Conroy has just released a book for kids aged 8-12 called ANZARD. Teachers, parents, producers…take note!  This appealing and well-written book would give Lewis Carroll (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland) reason to worry.  As a matter of fact if you mixed in one part Harry Potter, with one part Pinocchio then added a generous helping of Alice in Wonderland…you’d get Anzard!

ANZARD tells the story of how a young boy named Justin Cavell learns to listen to that voice inside him and trust his instincts.  He also learns how his dreams and wishes can come true:  Justin becomes more aware of himself and his potential to turn his dreams and wishes into reality.

One dark and stormy night, as Justin is anxiously awaiting the return of his parents and praying for their safe return from a long overdue plane trip, he is visited by Poofy, a tiny, magical pixie who comes from the faraway planet, Spiritainia.  Justin is escorted to this wonderful world of Spiritainia by the Anzard pixie, Poofy.  Aside from Poofy, Justin is joined by his own Tribe of Truth – that include such memorable characters as Regal the Eagle, Turner the Turtle, Chumpah the Chipmunk and Billy the Goat – define Justin’s inner voice and help him in his quest of self-discovery.

Justin also learns to resolve conflict, which arrives in the form of an evil witch named Nosefeen, and captures Poofy as Poofy is guiding Justin to the Path of Possibilities. Through these adventures, Justin grows stronger and develops self-esteem, enabling him to return to Earth, find his parents, and guide them home safely.

ANZARD opens up a world of rewards for kids who learn to develop and trust their inner voice. The book helps them to become more aware and enlightened.

The ANZARD book cover is beautifully illustrated by Peter Green Design of Glendale, California who also designs for film companies, sporting teams and many other businesses including DreamWorks, McDonald’s, The Walt Disney Company, LEGOLAND, The NBA, HBO, FOX Kids Networks, and the “Game of Thrones” fantasy drama television series, to name a few.

“A timeless, yet very modern story of a young boy’s journey to a magical new world, filled with enchanting characters and thrilling adventure.  You owe yourself a trip to Spiritania.”

–           Victoria Lucas, Producer

“My nephew loved ANZARD so much I had to see what got him so excited.  After the first chapter I was hooked.  I normally don’t read this kind of fiction (fantasy) but the storyline was compelling enough to make me locate the author’s website and post this review.

Can’t wait to read Mr. Conroy’s next novel!”

–           D. Butler, Amazon Post

Justin’s story can even appeal to adults.  Says Mr. Conroy, “I want my readers to come away happier, more aware and enlightened…as a child I was aware of many things but I constantly invalidated that awareness.  I shouldn’t have.  Those gifts are precious.  Our inner awareness should be nurtured and cultivated, especially by parents and the child who has those gifts.  Maybe some part of Anzard will awaken those powers.”

MY THOUGHTS:

ANZARD by Christopher Conroy is an interesting Children’s Book with elements of Fantasy/Supernatural. Suitable for ages 8-12.  A cute, delightful tale of learning to trust yourself, and your instincts.

Meet, Justin Cavell. The cast of characters include, Poofy (a magical Pixie),  Regal the Eagle, Turner the Turtle, Chumpah the Chipmunk, Billy the Goat, and an evil witch, named Nosefeen.  Then you have a planet named, Spiritainia, the Tribe of Truth, the Path of Possibilities. Justin, must find his parents and guide them safely home.

With self-discovery, using one’s inner voice, becoming more aware, adventure, helps to build self-esteem, and  enlightenment.

Compelling, exciting, and enchanting. Educators, parents, teachers, grandparents,and Librarians, this is a must read book. Picture “Alice in Wonderland” meets “Willie Wonky” and add a bit of “Harry Porter”, than you have the tale of “Anzard”. Well written with an interesting cast of characters and a modern day look at Children’s Books.

TOP 5 MAGICAL CREATURES~#GIVEAWAY~ KISSED BY THE WAVE~ SERENA GILLEY…

18679575
Top 5 Listby Serena Gilley

My Top 5 Magical creatures:

1. Mermaids--who didn’t pretend they were a mermaid as a kid flopping around in the local swimming pool or shivering on vacation at the lake? I stayed in the water until I was puckered like a prune and dreamed of being able to swim forever, weightless and sleek, exploring whatever magical mysteries surely must lie below. Now as an adult it’s even more fun to imagine that watery world with all sorts of wet and wonderful grown-up activities!

2. Fairies--what’s not to love? They fly, they sparkle, they glow in all different colors. And they have Fairy Dust! Fairies can make all your wishes come true in the most magical ways. It’s fun to imagine just what tantalizing things they might do with all of that glittering dust at their command.

3. Dragons–they’re Hot. Seriously sizzling, ragingly Hot. Huge, ancient, powerful, dangerous, and oh so beautiful to look at. Yeah, I love dragons. I’ll even admit to every now and then wondering what it would be like to have a dragon love me back…

4. Wood Spirits–is it possible these are real? I swear I’ve heard them, felt their allure as I’ve entered their realms. They live in wild areas, places where nature is allowed to run free and do what nature does best. Wood spirits can be vast like a forest, or tiny like the bits of moss that cling where life is just holding on. They thrive in their green, vibrant world by being unseen, yet felt all around, guiding our footsteps and manipulating our thoughts.

5. Shape-shifters–coolest supernatural power ever! I suppose it would be very handy to be a shifter who could look like anybody you wanted to, but usually shifters transform into some uber-cool real-life animal or even a fantastical creature. Being a shape-shifter would be super fun. Dating one of these guys would be even more fun because you’d have the best of both worlds: you’d have the hottest boyfriend ever AND you’d get to play with a really cute wolf puppy or snuggle with your own pet tiger.

Oh my, what magical creatures!! Who doesn’t love these creatures??
Thank you for your list!!

KISSED BY THE WAVE by Serena Gilley (August 5, 2014; Forever Yours E-Book; $2.99)
Beyond the limits of sight, magical beings live in the Forbidden Realm. The two worlds were once connected, but the desires of man forced their separation. Now, desire may bring them back together . . .Aliya is a mermaid with an obsession. Though contact with humans is strictly forbidden, she can’t seem to stay away from the incredibly handsome Devin, who visits her lake night after night. Her body and soul have never been drawn to anyone like this before. Deciding that her longing for Devin is worth the risk, she goes to him. As their lust for each other deepens, Aliya grows to need his touch as much as she needs water.Devin believed Aliya was a perfect fantasy his mind created-until the breathtaking mermaid swims to shore. Courtesy of a magical wish, Aliya is newly human, and she and Devin give in to their passion again and again. But Aliya’s mortal form is only temporary. If they don’t have the strength to part ways when the time comes, their illicit love could rock the balance between the realms forever . . .

About the author:
Serena Gilley grew up reading fantasy and fairy tales, and believing there was a distinct possibility that both of them were real. Somewhere. Even all these years later, Serena’s belief in magic and mystery hasn’t diminished. In fact, She is living out her own happily-ever-after with a handsome prince in a beautiful castle, taming dragons and granting wishes every day.  Okay, so the prince is a regular guy, the dragons are really just teenagers, and the wishes she grants are as spectacular as frozen pizza on Friday night, but it’s a fantasy world just the same.

ABOUT THE BOOK:Blud_and_Magick_Preston_Norton_novel_9781462110889_cover

Blud and Magick

“Uncle Ed, I . . . I did that to them,” she stammered.

Edwin cocked an eyebrow. “Did what?”

She pointed to the two bodies, impaled by ice.

“You did?” His eyes became wide with concern.

Darla nodded, biting her lip. “Uncle Ed . . . what am I?”

Darla Summer was born from the ashes of the dead Shadow Lord, Remmus Alrad. This left the Seven Sages to deliberate what was to be done with her. Darius, the Sage who slew the Shadow Lord, wants her dead. Another Sage, Edwin, believes she deserves a chance to live. Edwin is granted permission to raise her in the human world under the condition that her true identity not be revealed until an appointed time.

Fourteen years later, Darla has no idea of her magical beginnings or her dark heritage. But when she meets Ash and Cirrus—teenage brothers who are not so human themselves—her world is turned upside down. An organization known as the Shadow Risers is out to collect her, claiming that she is the vessel of their Master, and Darla is forced to fight back. But how do you fight your greatest enemy when he’s living inside you?
